While Prodigal has been available in cans for a week now in their tap room, this beer is now available in cans elsewhere in the market. Looking forward to seeing what beer Ei8ht Ball cans next.
The Newport-based craft brewery Ei8ht Ball Brewing has announced plans to package its year-round favorite Prodigal American Pale Ale beginning Monday, July 20. A can launch celebration will take place at the Ei8ht Ball Taproom in Newport on Tuesday, July 21, and will be the only place to purchase the Prodigal cans until it is released for retail distribution on Monday, July 27.
“Cans are the ideal packaging choice for our beers. We feel they are the best vessel to protect our beers from unwanted oxygen and light, while having the advantage of being extra portable for our fans. Simply put, cans mean better, fresher beer, in the hands of more beer drinkers,” says Brewmaster Mitch Dougherty.
The 6-pack cans of Prodigal will be available at a limited number of Greater Cincinnati retail locations for $10.99. Draught versions of the beers, as well as seasonal and specialty brews will continue to be available not only at the Ei8ht Ball Taproom, but also in Ohio from Cavalier Distributing and Kentucky from Beer House Distributing
Ei8ht Ball even did a video for the occasion.
